“Eastern meditation is an attempt to empty the mind; Christian meditation is an attempt to fill the mind.”
From my morning readings in “A Celebration of Discipline“, by Richard J. Foster .

This documentary follows as Abbot
Christopher Jamison introduces 5 ordinary people to silent meditation. The result is fascinating. Every time I watch this series, I am overwhelmed by a desire to go for a guided silent meditation retreat. And I have tried to introduce more silence into my life, although I have found this to be very challenging.
